On September 30, 2020, the Paladin Archive was leaked, and contained a number of folders having to do with the Pokemon spinoff, Pokemon Ranger.

Ranger_e3_060420 Folder

This folder contains two NDS ROMs of Pokemon Ranger demos, supposedly intended to be showcased at E3. Both demos are dated April 20, 2006.

The M and F at the end of the file name seem to denote which ROM is debug and which is non-debug. ROMs with M have a debug menu that can be accessed by pressing A on the main menu.
